BOOM! Quinnipiac Finds Gardner Ahead of Udall, 48–40

WHOA!

Colorado U.S. Sen. Mark Udall trails U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, his Republican challenger, 48 – 40 percent among likely voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independent candidate Steve Shogan gets 8 percent.

With Shogan out of the race, Rep. Gardner leads 52 – 42 percent, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds. This survey of likely voters can not be compared with earlier surveys of registered voters.

In the three-way matchup, Gardner leads Udall among men 53 – 34 percent, with 9 percent for Shogan. Women go 46 percent for Udall, 43 percent for Gardner and 7 percent for Shogan.

And to think, I just wrote in my state-of-the-race piece, “Cory Gardner is not going to win big.”

(Despite this poll, it’s probably still likely to be a close result. But I guess we’ll see how the next few polls go!)
